with president obama. dagen? dagen: thank you so much, happy thanksgiving, my man. down in washington, d.c., but here in studio with my, monica crowely, author of "what the bleep just happened?" how do they have influence over the white house and represent in terms of the private job market a tiny sliver of employees in the country? >> it really is incredible. we've seen a hemorrhaging away from the many, many past decades. you're right to say their influence is a lot. it's disproportional to the membership. it's less about the union members and those running those union,s union heads. it should be no surprise here. i mean, barack obama's sympathies lie with the unions and their interests. that's always been the case from the time he was a community organizer straight through to the president of the united states. dagen: fixing entitlements is unavoidable. we're three years from the trust fund going bust. do you think this -- they will influence the president right now? >> remember, dagen, the first group of people invited to the white house after president obama was re-elected were thes

all the onerous and burdensome regulations coming out of washington. and we want to make that stop so we can turn the country around and began to be a starter country again. we know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see more startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to hope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canaday. if you don't know these regulations, you could be in big trouble. let's say that you stop adding to the regulations. that alone has prompted the obama administration say, well, republicans don't want to protect us. how are you going to answer the predictable criticism that you're not looking out for folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in health emergency, of course
